Cumin and Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Cumin and Lime Roasted Sweet Potatoes
This is a great, easy recipe from the September 2012 Vegetarian Times. 
I'll certainly make this recipe again and again.
I rarely eat sweet potatoes when they're not sweet - boiled and mashed with butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar.  Delicious!  But I was curious about this savory version.
I was delighted to find that these are delicious, and even mildly sweet, roasted with cumin, paprika, and topped with lime and cilantro.  They're really, really good!
I started by peeling and cubing my potatoes while the oven was pre-heating to 425*.
I tossed them with 1 tsp of olive oil and placed them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Then I sprinkled them with smoked paprika, cumin, and the juice of half a lime.

The potatoes roasted for 45 minutes and were plenty tender, so I transferred them to a platter and sprinkled them with the other half of lime, and topped them with chopped fresh cilantro.
